Bamboo Flooring layout.


Hello.

I bought some bamboo flooring , 28 pieces per box.

(20) x 37 3/4"
(4) x 22 1/4"
(4) x 15 3/4"

What kind of pattern should i run with?. I orginally just wanted to use all the large ones and just go full row/half row/full row/half.. etc.. But i won't have enough to coverage my whole layout without using the little ones..

The little ones have a bit of differant color shade to them i noticed, do i work them into the edges and in the middle of flooring rows ??

Just use them all by mixing up the long and short planks first. I'd run the planks parallel to the longest wall which is horizontal in your picture.

I just drew that line to get the center measurement for the layout.

Im just stumped on mixing the layup out. Are seams that less notiable that you don't need a perfect staggered pattern?

The floor will look nicer with random pattern, leave 6" gap at start/end of each plank of the adjacent row.
